It’s another busy day for Stanley and friends on the construction site!
“Simplicity and good design make this pleasing picture book a riveting choice for young children intrigued by seeing big machines, using hand tools, and building things.” ―Booklist Online
When Myrtle buys a plot of land, she asks her friend Stanley to build her a new house. He works step by step – from clearing the site with his orange bulldozer, to lifting beams with his green crane. Luckily, Stanley’s friend Charlie helps out, too. And at the end of a hard day of working, Stanley returns home where it’s “Time for supper! Time for a bath! And time for bed!”
Stanley the Builder shows young readers—with simple steps, accessible text, and brightly colored illustrations—how construction workers build a house. Toddlers who love equipment, tools, and vehicles won’t be disappointed! It ends with a familiar, comforting bedtime refrain that puts little ones in the mind to go to sleep.
Perfect for fans of Maisy and vehicles, tools, and equipment, William Bee’s beloved Stanley series features Stanley, an adorable hardworking hamster, and his community of rodent friends as they work different jobs and help each other along the way. The sturdy padded picture book format is ideal for readers at a transitional age between board books and picture books, and the books are trusted models for basic preschool concepts including colors and shapes, kindness and teamwork, community helpers, jobs and careers, vehicles, and daily routines.
